In our ongoing project to spiff-up our kitchen we ditched our blue, hand-made rag rug (bought at a market in Cedar City, Utah). It was falling apart and anyway, it had never matched our kitchen.
I didn't want to rush replacing our rug. During the last two years I've instituted a new rule for our 450-square-foot apartment: buy only what we love. No more "make do for now" junk. So I started looking in magazines and blogs for kitchen rugs and guess what -- I never see rugs in the kitchen. Why? Do they remove the rugs for the photo shoot or is there something gauche about having a rug in the kitchen?
I posed this question at Food Buzz and it's gone unanswered. Does anyone out there have an opinion about kitchen rugs? Feel free to respond either here or at Food Buzz.
By the way, I got the above image from this website, where I thought I'd find some funny, hideous rugs. I actually kind of like some of their rugs, though.
